The isms of a 10 year old

  • While kissing my niece and making her giggle, my sister said she thinks my kisses are more ticklish than other people’s. My nephew presented his cheek to evaluate for himself and then said, “Yeah, they are. There’s a sparkle in them.”
  • While eating dinner with me and my mom, my nephew, out of nowhere, says, “Someday I’ll be dating a girl and I’m concerned about impressing her parents.”
  • After being told his eyelashes are the longest I’ve ever seen he says, “It’s like Hercules on my eyeballs.”
  • After being told about a family member who died many years ago at the age of six he says, “Oh God. Six is too young to die. There’s still too much wonder in the world.”

  • About Me

    My mother is an encyclopedia of useless information (sorry, ma, but it's true) - no one can beat her at Trivial Pursuit. As I age, I become more like dear old mom everyday. I routinely tell people about resources, recipes, tips, tricks, or websites I've heard about, tried, live by, etc. until one of my clients urged me to start a blog. So here it is! My perpetual ramblings. I hope you find them useful and amusing. If you don't, you can either keep it to yourself or leave me a well constructed critique.

    I'm a former massage therapist, a freelance journalist, and a web information architect and UX designer. I enjoy yoga, the Bar Method, camping, reading, gardening, and spending time with my friends and loved ones. I live in Colorado.
